Many of the submitted bugs have a test page, some have workarounds and all accept comments. It’s already looking to be an extremely useful resource; if it gets anyway close to Position Is Everything it will be fantastic.
Talking of conferences, Jeffrey Veen talks about how PowerPoint has automated lazy thought. He goes on to say how he’s tried to move away from bullet pointed presentations (and how hard it is to properly) and how Keynote’s current lack of cruft has helped along the way.
Quite rightly we see the ‘ditch bullet pointed presentations’ message a lot nowadays, in particular Tufte’s well known booklet which goes a long way to highlighting all that’s wrong with PowerPointed slides. However this does little to demonstrate a better way of doing things. Given that PowerPoint bullets are seemingly ingrained into the corporate psyche, we are going to need more help and persuasion to shift the mindset.
